Watch DVDs in Windows 8
Q. I just upgraded to Windows 8. I'm trying to watch DVDs in Windows Media Player, but it's not working. Am I doing something wrong?
A. Microsoft dropped DVD support in Windows Media Player for Windows 8. If you want to play DVDs, you have to upgrade to Windows Media Center. That isn't free and isn't the most powerful or customizable option for watching DVDs. Instead, I recommend VLC Media Player. It works with more formats than the standard options that come with Windows, so it can play video from all over the Web. It can run in a window, unlike Windows Media Center, so it's better for multi-tasking, too.
vlc is a free download. been using for years in both linux and windows.
